e-Cigarettes Linked to Explosions

e-Cigarettes Linked to Explosions

by Staff Blogger | March 22nd, 2016

Smoking is one of the most dangerous habits you can form. Thousands of people die of lung cancer and related conditions every year, many of which are attributed to tobacco use. In recent years, a seemingly safe alternative surfaced that delivers an equivalent amount of nicotine without the toxins found in cigarette smoke. For a while, it seemed that these e-cigarettes were the answer to quitting smoking and reducing the harmful effects attributed to the practice. However, it appears vaping isn’t as safe as you might think.

e-cigarettes are cartridge-filled devices that use a battery coil to heat liquid and turn it into vapor, which is inhaled by the user. Though the mechanics of these devices are simple, some of the devices themselves are turning out to be dangerous. Recently, there have been several incidents reported of e-cigarettes exploding while being charged and while in use, causing extensive injuries, such as:

  • Severe burns and scarring
  • Loss of vision
  • Finger amputations
  • Facial and limb disfigurement
  • Fires and other serious bodily injuries

If you have been injured by a defective e-cigarette, you may be entitled to a significant cash award. Call our product liability lawyers today for a free evaluation of your claim.
